    Chicago Police "Duped" by 14 year old

    This is just priceless. This Police Department thinks it is good enough to protect the people of Chicago obviously, since they are completely in favor of the people of Chicago not being able to own or carry a gun to protect themselves, and then they get fooled by a 14 year old boy like this!

    Fake Teen Cop Fools Police, Patrols Chicago for 5 Hours

    CHICAGO — A 14-year-old aspiring police officer donned a uniform, walked into a Chicago police station and managed to get an assignment — patroling in a squad car for five hours before he was detected, police said Sunday.

    The boy did not have a gun, never issued any tickets and didn't drive the squad car, Deputy Superintendent Daniel Dugan said.

    Assistant Superintendent James Jackson said the ruse was discovered only after the boy's patrol with an actual officer ended Saturday. Officers noticed his uniform lacked a star that is part of the regulation uniform.

    Police said they were investigating how the deception went undetected for so long in what they described as a serious security breach.

    Police didn't identify the boy because of his age. He has been charged as a juvenile with impersonating an officer.

    Dugan said the boy looks older than 14 and was motivated by a desire to be an officer, not malice or "ill intent."

    The boy once took part in a Chicago program for youth interested in policing, so he would have been familiar with some procedures, perhaps helping him blend in, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said.

    If the young man was so interested, he should've stuck to watching COPS. Now he'll never have the chance to actually be a LEO. Anyway, maybe its a good thing he did this... wouldn't want someone with such common sense difficulties on the street in uniform anyway.

    You mean to tell me that they don't know who is in their squad,It sounds like they don't pay to much attention to details as in he ain't got a gun or a badge

    I'm pretty sure it is just hand guns that you aren't allowed to own in Chicago.

    Anyway, something like this could probably happen in any city in any state. Kids are smart these days. I'm sure the Chicago Police are not the only LE agency that has had the wool pulled over their eyes.

    Sure, people get the fooled like this all the time. But like this? Only in an arrogant overgrown bureaucracy would this happen.

    Almost unbelievable. You would think the senior LEO's would have said something like..."Hey, Rookie, square away your uniform...Uh, Kid, Where's your gun?....So, Just who the heck are you?"
    The fact that it happened just makes me nauseatingly frustrated. While it may seem funny, what if the young man had bad intentions? There are all sorts of weapons available in a "cop shop", the LEO's have their guard down and he could have done a lot of damage. We'd be lamenting the senseless death of a LEO...maybe more than one.
    Also, what is the law abiding citizen to think the next time he/she sees a Chicago police officer? "...that one looks real, I think."

    I think it is funny as heck. The kid definately has some stones about him, and was smart enough not to break any serious laws, like driving, or attempting to carry a gun.

    It definatly puts egg on the faces of the department heads that made the mistake.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
